Wake Will honors a tradition of access and opportunity by aggressively facing the mounting financial obstacles that stand between deserving students and the experience we offer.
This campaign will further our ability to provide access to hardworking students who belong at Wake Forest, regardless of their ability to finance their education. Providing access to Wake Forest is simply the first step. Once students arrive, the doors of opportunity must remain open.
A life of purpose results from a tireless pursuit of one’s passion, not the path that alleviates the most debt.

We want to make it possible for middle-income students to pursue their education at Wake Forest.
